Description of problem:

Hello there,

I have just tried to compile package FreeWnn-1.11-27

I got the following messages from the compiler.

cc: Info: js.c, line 2887: In this statement, an array is being accessed outside the bounds specified for the array type. (subscrbounds)

Here is an untested patch to shut up the compiler.

./Xsi/Wnn/jlib/js.c.old ./Xsi/Wnn/jlib/js.c

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. copy source code onto Compaq Alpha machine.
2. compile with Compaq compiler, using flags -w0 -fast
3.
    

Additional info:


Compaq compiler is not significant. Just think of it as a 
C compiler which has better warnings than the GNU compiler.

The FreeWnn source code fails to conform to the rules for ISO C.

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2003-04-21 11:43:34 UTC
Ok, thanks for the patch.  Not sure whether this was
actually causing any problems, but I'll put the patch into
the next build.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2003-04-21 13:02:17 UTC
Patch added to 1.11-35.  Thanks :)

Comment 3 David Lawrence 2006-04-24 18:58:11 UTC
Adding to blocker bug 185486 and adding IBM group.

Comment 4 David Lawrence 2006-04-24 19:43:29 UTC
The last changes to these bugs were mistakenly made. Removing incorrect blocker
bug and confidential group.
